XM will broadcast from new studios with 5.1 mixing capability at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.
The organizations announced a multi-year deal. Jazz performance producer and educator Lincoln Center has a new home at Broadway and 60th St. in the Frederick P. Rose Hall.
The company becomes the satellite radio partner for the center and gains the right to broadcast several music channels daily from the venue beginning next month. XM will also record and air some live concerts. The partners will co-produce new shows for broadcast, as well as create and distribute other jazz programming.
Jazz at Lincoln Center opened the Rose Hall in October. The control rooms, designed for 5.1 surround sound mixing, can air live performances from the Rose Hall venues.
As it does in Washington, XM can rent out its studio. XM Productions - Effanel Music, a live music, remote and mobile recording company recently acquired by XM, will offer recording services.
XM music channels that will air programs from the venue include traditional jazz, Frank Sinatra and other standards, Broadway musicals, modern jazz and new age music.
XM will continue to air talk shows from New York studios at the Economist Building on West 57th St.; the satcaster also broadcasts from headquarters in Washington and the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
